I'm usually very enthusiastic about any thing new at Commons. However I
understand the concerns others have already brought up. For the time I have
been at Commons, there have only three new sandbox components been created:
BeanUitls2 and Inject have been created from scratch by one of our
committers after a formal vote, Commons RDF is currently going through the
incubator after some discussions. I don't understand why we're rushing into
this in this case. There has been very low activity in Commons RDF which
has shown me, that it was a good idea to go through the incubator to build
a community first.

Further more I would like to remind everybody about one of the core terms
of the ASF [1]. We don't accept people (or their code) because they are
rock stars in Computer Science, but because they have proofed their skills
and willingness to work on our components over a longer period of time.

Thank you!
